Online and distance learning offerings are growing rapidly and more libraries find themselves shifting from in-person to online methods for connecting with students and faculty. This panel includes four librarians who dove head first into the role of coordinating library services for distance and online users. Panelists will discuss ideas for implementing successful services, imperative skills every good distance librarian needs, strategic planning advice, and more. Audience interaction will be encouraged.
